Story Behind the Art:
Tiraphan Hasub tells of her craft, 'I met my husband at university in Bangkok. I worked there for three years after graduating, and then got married. We moved back to Chiang Mai, where he is originally from, and he taught me the art of handcrafts. I'm always trying to look good by wearing nice dresses and jewelry. I believe many women think like me, and that's what inspired me to create jewelry that is original. My designs tend to be more traditional Thai than modern.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

the bracelets were true to picture. They were long enough that I wear one as an anklet. They are comfortable to wear and love the color and materialRead More
Very well made beautiful bracelet. There are two individual bracelets that have two size adjustments - loop goes over a bead for sizing.Read More
This was a Christmas gift for my niece. She loves it.Read More
Bracelets are very pretty but difficult to put on. You only need one if you have small wrists because they are wide.Read More
The bracelets are extremely well made and add a traditional, though unique look to any outfit. When they arrived on my door step, I opened the box to find them tucked inside a beautifully wrapped box. There was also information about where they come from (Which I loved). The moment you take them out of the box, you know you have something special. The bracelets are comfortable and fit well. I gave one to my boyfriend who has much bigger wrists than I do and they fit him just as well as they fit me. I get compliments on them every time I wear them. Definitely a great buy!Read More
i ordered these on 2/25/10 and just got them today 3/11/10, so they did take a while, they didnt even ship until 3/6/10. They came in a cute box and were wraped around a little pillow, so great presentaion for a gift. The coins are thinner and less sturdy than they appear, but that is good because they dont weight the bracelet down. i kept one for myself and gave one to my mom. mine fits me just fine (my wrist measures 6.5 inches) the braclet itself is about 8 inches long, so if you have an 8 inch wrist or so, it may be a little tight. From the picture i thought these would have a bit of a hemp feel, but they dont, they are kind of waxy to the touch, but they are still cute.Read More
These are nice and casual. Unusual and cool. Well made- tight weave and coins well attached. Looks cool as a pair or individually depending on your mood!Read More
I saw the picture and they looked cool but I'm was kind of nervous that I'd get them and not be happy with them. I am completely happy with the bracelets and wear them all the time. They are well made and were the perfect size.Read More
The bracelets are gorgeous and come in a nice box. The coins on the bracelets sit nicely and do not feel like they will break or fall off. However, I did notice that when I accidentally got water on the bracelet, the two wood beads that latch the bracelet together lost its shine and now have a dried up look to them. But it is not a problem, just gives the bracelet more character. Overall, a great buy, I only wear one but am saving the second one in case the first one breaks or is lost.Read More
